Cleese Splits With Tell-all Lover?

Subscribe to John Cleese alerts

John Cleese has reportedly called off his relationship with younger lover BARBIE ORR - just a week after she lifted the lid on their love life. The Fawlty Towers star met Orr at an audition in October (08) while he was in the midst of divorcing his third wife Alyce Faye Eichelberger.
He was reportedly left red-faced after the aspiring actress told the British press intimate details about their romance last week (19Jan09), describing the star's naked body and recalling their first sexual encounter.
Now Cleese is said to have told friends the relationship is over, insisting he has no plans to return her calls, according to Britain's Daily Mail.
The newspaper alleges Cleese was stunned after learning Orr was not 27 as she had claimed - but was actually born in 1964.
It is the latest setback for Cleese, 69, who is facing a multi-million dollar pay out to Eichelberger following their split after 16 years of marriage.
